On May 6, hemp legalization proponents in more than 95 cities worldwide protested in the Millennium Marijuana March. More than 150 Anchoragites carried signs, chanted and handed out fliers as they snaked their way from downtown to Spenard. Channels 11 and 2 filmed us and KZND 87.7 FM disc jockey Cliffie Cloven walked the entire route, interviewing as he went. 
Why wasn't the Daily News there? Maybe the ADN was scared to lose advertiser support. If you and everyone who even slightly supports legalization doesn't help's awareness-raising events, your taxes will continue being wasted trying to punish the one in five Americans who have chosen to smoke a plant that has never killed anyone (unlike violent and harmful alcohol and household inhalants). Through events like the march we relay the message that Alaska should follow Holland's tourist-attracting example of taxing and zoning marijuana. We need media attention in order to register voters for the Nov. 7 elections during which we'll be able to improve Alaska's economy because everything that can be made from plastic or wood can be produced from biodegradable hemp. Next time, maybe it won't only be The End (KZND) that's hip to Alaska's new beginning. - Fred Frontier Anchorage Articles & Web Sites On The Millennium Marijuana March:Media Ignored Protest Do We Want?
